WFM/IGP has a long history of leadership and innovation in promoting international democracy, justice and the rule of law. Founded shortly after World War II and the creation of the United Nations (UN) as an international peace movement, WFM/IGP is an international nongovernmental organization (NGO) in consultative status with the UN and other international organizations. With scores of national and associated affiliates, WFM/IGP is a democratically governed, membership-based, non-profit organization, with individual supporters throughout the world. WFM/IGP is a leader in developing strategic worldwide NGO networks on global governance issues.
In many ways, WFM/IGP is contributing to the development of a powerful culture of peace in our world; one based not on war, but on international law, human rights, and justice. WFM/IGP is primarily an international movement of member organizations and these groups are supported by tens of thousands of individual members from almost every nation in the world. We welcome your individual membership in our global efforts to promote the principles of international democracy, federalism, global governance, and human rights.
Membership Benefits Package

Member Organizations (MOs) have a primary focus of supporting world federalism and spreading its ideas. MOs work closely with WFM/IGP on projects and programs. Associated Organizations (AOs) are those with a primary mandate different from WFM/IGP’s but that are in general sympathy with the idea of world federalism and wish to work in close cooperation with the Movement. The majority of organizations become an AO for a period of time before transitioning into becoming an MO.
By-Laws setting membership dues are as follows:
- The annual membership fee for Member Organizations (MOs) shall be the equivalent of $5.00/€5.00 per individual full member of the MO and the equivalent of $2.00/€2.00 per individual senior citizen and student member. The minimum fee for all MOs shall be the equivalent of $150.00/€150.00.
